Singapore's Art Museum will host a “Thai Transience” Buddhist exhibition and bring a touch of the exotic into its cultured halls. The exhibition will feature previously unseen works by Thawan Duchanee and the “Namo Buddhaya: A Path toward the Divine Light” by Phatyos Buddhacharoen amongst other works.


The Singapore Art Museum is hosting a major exhibition, "Thai Transience", featuring works by 25 Thai artists. Opening tonight, it's part of Singapore's Thai Festival, aimed at boosting friendship and cultural exchange.

Curator Apinan Poshyananda says the exhibition is inspired by monk Lung Por Cha Supanttho's teachings on the transience of life. It includes both rare antiques and modern art, ranging from paintings, sculptures, installations and films to videos. Some of the pieces are part of the museum's permanent collection.

"We have antiques from Ban Chiang - statues of the Buddha from different periods, from Ayutthaya to Rattanakosin," Apinan says. "We've tried to emphasise that art has roots."
